General amiibo Discussion Thread
 
amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.

I agree, capitalism is disgusting.

Rosalina's page is up on Target's site, but you can't actually click the pre-order button (yet).

I've been checking feverishly for when it does go on sale. I'm tempted to buy two just so I have one to help out a fellow Negative Worlder who might miss out.

If anyone is curious, Shulk is now available for pre-order at EB in Canada. Got mine in this morning!

@VofEscaflowne
I was just about to come in here to complain that no Canadian stores are taking pre-orders.

EDIT - I pre-ordered for in-store pickup. Hoo-rah!

I canceled Pit and Sonic because I need to slow down. Once I get Rosalina on pre-order (hoping that goes live today), I'll have five on pre-order (her, Mega Man, Ike, Sheik, and Luigi...since Amazon "can't find him").

The page has been up but not active for days. Who knows when this will update.

@DrFinkelstein

There's actually a pre-order button on there this morning though, which there wasn't at all yesterday.

Mom got me a Diddy for Christmas, apparently, and picked up a Zelda in case my reserve at GameStop goes *poof* for whatever reason. They still haven't called me, hmmm... In any event, because I bought the Little Mac early, that ensures that all over the 2A figures are "mine" now. Was anyone looking for a Little Mac (or Zelda)?

Ooh snap. I'm gonna keep an eye out then for sure.

It's LIVE! It's LIVE! Rosalina pre-orders at target.com are LIVE!

Edit: Well... they were.... now the button wont work for me. I thought it was limiting me to 1 per person but I was going to get another to help someone here and the website now states "Sorry, this item is not currently available."

If they're truly sold out already, then what the fuck. Based on twitter, these were open for 30 minutes. Something ain't right.

Edit: Now the button is sold out again. I... presume... mine is a legit pre-order? I don't know what the hell happened here. It was earlier than 6am here in the EST time zone for God's sake.

I'm not real happy about how Target has handled this for the last two nights now (was about 3 minutes Tuesday morning and 30 this morning) so I've got to think they glitched. She's one of the few I've been clamoring for since day one.

Per that Tweet, the Nintendo World Store in NYC has Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, and Marth. Limit one per person. Highly recommend some action from the boards on this.

I know Mustache really needs a wft.

@DrFinkelstein

I have two Wii Fit Trainers. If Stache is looking to get one, I've got the hook up. But if anyone wants to pick up a Villager or Marth for me, I'd be elated.
Posted: 12/17/14, 20:13:29
I thought I would maybe only pick up one amiibo. I'm up to 6 with Pit and Shulk coming in later. Got Mario today but that was free with Captain Toad!
Posted: 12/17/14, 20:20:43
@VofEscaflowne

On that note, we really need a Captain Toad amiibo! What a missed opportunity already!

@kriswright

I let him know to get in touch with you to talk it out.

@DrFinkelstein

CPA_Wei and deathly_hallows are the only ones in NYC area as far as I know (maybe Tranquilo too?) and even then it's not exactly convenient to get to midtown Manhattan all the time. But maybe if they're in the area.

@Jargon

Certainly. NYC is a big place and not convenient for quick trips. Definitely don't want to speak on anyone's behalf but hey, it's one known location for the moment.

I picked up Peach and Link for my 3 year-old daughter's and my stockings last night. She typically picks Peach when we play (read: she watches me play) Mario Kart, so I think she'll be excited.

@kriswright

Oh MAN, can someone in NYC do something? I'd like to see KW get a Marth or Villager before I get his WFT, honestly.
